Quality Assurance – Delivering a Quality Product

Recently, CrossFit HQ distributed notification that all individuals that have taken the Level 1 certification are required to take a written examination of the fundamentals of the CrossFit methodology. The main reason for this requirement is to ensure that the quality of the product is maintained at a high level. In addition to passing the test, all trainers and affiliates will be required to take the assessment every 5 years to emphasize continuing education.

This is something we take very seriously because we are responsible for upholding the quality and integrity of the organization and the product that is delivered.

As many of us travel around the country for jobs or vacation, there is a strong likelihood that we will ‘drop-in’ on a box or affiliate and participate with other Kool-Aid drinkers. It is very apparent when we have a guest at CFSF that has had proper coaching and knows how to perform the required exercises in the WOD.

In addition to listening to the coaching staff during their explanations and demonstrations and performing each exercise with the proper range of motion on every repetition, what additional resources or routines do you utilize to further your knowledge of CrossFit?

Do you read publications or subscribe to the CrossFit Journal?

Do you stay after class to work on proper form of a lift or exercise that is pointed out to you during a WOD?

Are YOU a student of the game???

Ask one of the coaches for help if you have questions – we are here to help!

Keeping ourselves accountable when nobody is watching is vitally important to maintaining high standards…it could be your classmate that is looking up to you.
